smartool-cover.jpgThe SMARTool is a resource to be used by schools, communities, youth-serving agencies and other organizations interested in presenting risk-avoidance education to youth. It is designed to:

  • describe effective sexual risk-avoidance interventions and programs

Through a cooperative agreement with the Division of Adolescent School Health (DASH) in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The Center for Relationship Education developed the SMARTool. The objectives of the SMARTool are to:

  • help schools and youth-serving organizations identify and implement programs that inform youth about sexual risks and support youth to delay sexual involvement
  • serve as a resource to developers of sexual risk avoidance curricula
  • increase the confidence and proficiency of educators
  • improve the effectiveness of community programs promoting sexual risk-avoidance

Developed through a Federal grant, it is free to download.
